It looks like the bad blood between Jay-Z and Rita Ora is about to get all the more awkward, as his record label Roc Nation files a $2.3million lawsuit against her in a bid to 'release' her from her contract. Oh GAHD.

Things took a turn into awkward city back in December when it was revealed that Rita Ora was suing Roc Nation over 'irrevocable damages', arguing that the company's change in direction led to her music being forgotten about.

And it looks like Jay-Z's label are hitting right back, filing a lawsuit against the singer in a bid to end their long term dispute.

Roc Nation claims it signed Rita in 2008 when she was unknown and invested millions in her career. In return she had to deliver 5 albums, but the label says it only got one in the shape of her debut album, which was released in 2012. TMZ say the point of the lawsuit is to gain money back, as the label believe they have spent more than $3.2million on marketing her second LP.

Er, but then it's also been reported that Jay-Z has already promised to release Rita from her contract, meaning the suit might not be necessary if the pair can come to an agreement amongst themselves.

Rita's attorney Howard King told Page 6: "Jay Z has personally and graciously promised Rita complete freedom from Roc Nation, the details of which are now being finalized.

"We believe that Roc Nation's distributor, Sony Music, has required Roc Nation to file this action to preserve whatever rights Sony might have pending resolution."

Make of that what you will, but do you think Reets and Jay will come to a decision or what? Let's discuss over on our twitter or in the comment box below, y'all.
